blocSonic

blocSonic is netlabel music, it’s creative commons music. We spotlight the best of creative commons and netlabel music. blocSonic represents the next phase of the netlabel revolution. We release compilations and original releases featuring the best netaudio music from our homebase in the State of Maine.

For the past decade an alternative culture of music has been sprouting up outside the wastelands of the increasingly formulaic and compartmentalized mainstream music business. This world of “Netaudio” is generally released freely, either independently or through Netlabels. As this culture continues to grow, the amount of available music grows exponentially making it increasingly difficult for folks who are new to the culture to filter the good from the bad. Each of our free releases, in one way or another, are an attempt to shine the spotlight on what we think is the best of what this world has to offer.

Consider blocSonic a filter through which you can discover this vibrant, global culture! Currently there are six ways which we spotlight what the netaudio world has to offer:

fortyFives

fortyFives are blocSonic’s take on the classic 7" single format. An A side, a B side and tracks no longer than 6 minutes in length. Because of this, it’s the perfect format to allow us the freedom to quickly surprise you with new music any day of the week by any current and future artists. They send us the music, we quickly get it to you. Each fortyFive features:

  • Available in a choice of four high-quality audio formats — Lossless FLAC, OGG, 320kbs MP3 and 192kbs MP3.
  • Cover/Insert art and a short PDF booklet

All our fortyFives are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 License. We explicitly authorize the use of our fortyFives during for-profit DJ performances, radio broadcasts and in online DJ mixes. We do ask that you notify us of your use for our own curiosity and that blocSonic and the album artist are attributed and linked to where possible.

maxBlocs

These fantastic releases are blocSonic’s brand of promotional maxi-single and EP. As with traditional maxis, each of our maxBlocs feature 3-6 previously unreleased exclusive tracks! You can expect us to release 2 singles per Original/Xtended Edition release. We’ll also occasionally surprise you with original EP releases! Each maxBloc features:

  • Available in a choice of four high-quality audio formats — Lossless FLAC, OGG, 320kbs MP3 and 192kbs MP3.
  • Complete art is available in three formats — EPS, PDF and TIF.
  • PDF booklet

All our maxBloc releases are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 License. We explicitly authorize the use of our maxBloc releases during for-profit DJ performances, radio broadcasts and in online DJ mixes. We do ask that you notify us of your use for our own curiosity and that blocSonic and the album artist are attributed and linked to where possible.

Originals

During our travels through the wide-world of netaudio culture, we find artists who stand out and who we feel would be perfect to spotlight independently in original blocSonic album releases. Each Original features:

  • Available in a choice of three high-quality audio formats — Lossless FLAC, 320kbs MP3 and 192kbs MP3.
  • Complete album art is available in three formats — EPS, PDF and TIF.
  • 40+ page PDF booklet with complete liner-notes, lyrics, photos and album credits.

We explicitly authorize the use of our original releases during for-profit DJ performances, radio broadcasts and in online DJ mixes. We do ask that you notify us of your use for our own curiosity and that blocSonic and the album artist are attributed and linked to where possible.

netBlocs

Each of these eclectic releases shine a spotlight on ten or so international audio gems culled from the Netaudio culture. Each netBloc features:

  • Available in a choice of three high-quality audio formats — Lossless FLAC, 320kbs MP3 and 192kbs MP3.
  • Complete album art is available in three formats — EPS, PDF and TIF.
  • 30+ page PDF booklet with complete liner-notes, track credits and artist photos.

Xtended Editions

Each of our Xtended Edition (XE) series is essentially a re-release. A re-release of an album that blocSonic found to be an exceptional example of the quality that the netaudio world is capable of producing. These re-releases contain the original album as well as at least a bonus disc worth of material (remixes, demos, outtakes, new material and/or other unreleased material). They also feature fresh album art and as with all our releases an extensive PDF booklet.

Each Xtended Edition features:

  • At least 1 disc worth of bonus material
  • Available in a choice of four high-quality audio formats — Lossless FLAC, OGG, 320kbs MP3 and 192kbs MP3.
  • Complete new album art is available in three formats — EPS, PDF and TIF.
  • 40+ page PDF booklet with complete liner-notes, lyrics, photos and album credits.

All our Xtended Editions are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 License. We explicitly authorize the use of our Xtended Editions during for-profit DJ performances, radio broadcasts and in online DJ mixes. We do ask that you notify us of your use for our own curiosity and that blocSonic and the album artist are attributed and linked to where possible.

Xtras

These special collections feature Creative Commons licensed tracks that for one reason or another blocSonic couldn't acquire official permission to use but find them worthy of extra attention. Since no formal permission has been acquired, links to the original files are provided rather than compiling them into a proper release. However, a cover and a tracklisting is provided in order for you to burn them to disc, if you'd like.

Why do we do what we do? We love music, we love netaudio and have found that the quality and variety of what’s coming out of this culture is superior to that of much of what’s coming out of the mainstream music industry. We feel more secure donating to netaudio artists/labels then we do purchasing formulaic music-product from the majors. We’d like you to also feel that way toward the netaudio culture. We realize that most people don’t have the time and/or patience to filter through it all to find the good stuff, so we invest the time to find the gems in the ruff and deliver them to you in our releases.

In between releases, you can also look forward to blog posts about netaudio news or topics relating to DRM and online music.

So subscribe to our feed and discover great new openly-licensed music every month. Be sure to spread the word!

If you missed the release of the maxi-single “Glimmer” a couple weeks ago, you may have missed a bit of the background about this great band. Based out of Malmö, Sweden, they’ve been together for about six years now. In that time, they’ve released a couple incredible EPs on the Swedish netlabel Go, Jukebox! and performed live, on and off, in the Malmö region. From the beginning, they’ve put together a mixture of influences and ideas, however, they’re still trying to find their...

It all started sometime last year with a friend of mine, Rob Pitt, saying that he’d love it if there were a “minimal” netBloc release. However, with the netBloc series being about variety, I felt that I couldn’t release something so narrowly focused on one sub-genre. If I were to put together something remotely like that, it had to be something more varied. I decided to begin slowly pulling together instrumental netaudio gems as I came across them while developing other netBloc...

According to Chinese philosophy two opposing forces, the yin and the yang, co-exist interdependently to make up universal existence. You cannot have one without the other. So it seems in many aspects of life that you cannot have the good without the bad and vice-versa. Life, death, love, hate, peace, war all intermingled in equilibrium. Would we be able to recognize peace without war? War without peace? Would we recognize the gloriousness of a thriving, new alternative community of music based...

This was a release that I hoped to have ready in time for the holidays and was to be a holiday gift.

At least a concept in as much as a compilation can be a concept. There’s an overlying theme... that of the Moon.

It’s always exciting when I come across an artist who delivers an album that can be enjoyed from beginning to end. It’s even more enjoyable when that artist is completely independent. There’s something to be said for music independence in these days of packaged and repackaged mainstream music product. Independent music isn’t held back by labels and expectations to fit a certain mold. When I first heard Ant’s “Fly”, I was very impressed by the fact that it had that classic hip-hop...

Hip-hop is an incredibly diverse musical genre that has a bad reputation no thanks to the American mainstream branch of it. People who write-off hip-hop as idiotic, materialistic, violent or misogynist are only getting a small slice of what it’s about. Since hip-hop has become international there are a wide array of ideas about what hip-hop should be today in 2009 and beyond. Anyone who has ever enjoyed the music will gladly give you their opinion about what “real” hip-hop is. Truth be...

In it you’ll find a few high-profile peeps he’s managed to connect with – folks like Boots Riley who you may know from The Coup, Zumbi from Zion-I and Myron Glasper who’s sung background vocals for everyone from MC Lyte to Blackalicious to Lyrics Born. Among the names you may know, you’ll also find incredibly talented MCs and vocalists who you may not know. Once again, blocSonic brings you...

Love of music is what the netBloc series is about. It’s not about hatred of the mainstream music industry; even though it may seem so sometimes (no matter how much I am against everything that the music industry represents these days). The fact of the matter is that there are artists; worldwide; who aren’t being heard because they don’t fit into some generic compartment that the current music industry has deemed economically viable. The industry has completely lost sight of the art. As...

After taking a much needed month off from releasing, we’re back with another fresh batch of netaudio gems. Even with the month off, it was a bit of a bumpy ride pulling this together. During the process of attempting to acquire permissions and assets, we were unable to finalize on four original tracks and went through two rounds of changes. As is always the case though, this process ends up being beneficial for the release — since the line-up/track order is always scrutinized repeatedly...

A little over ten years ago, in 2002, I began working for SLAMjamz, the label run by Public Enemy’s Chuck D. I began by designing cover art for their digital single series. Among those digital singles were seven designed for Connecticut avante-garde power pop group, The Scallions, consisting of members Mike and Shawn Franklin. That eventually lead to me designing their SLAMjamz debut album “Agony Through Ceremony” in 2006. A year later I launched blocSonic and slowly molded it into the...

Back in the early noughts, Public Enemy’s Chuck D formed the world’s first virtual rap squad called The Impossebulls from a group of talented fans who frequented PE’s online forum, the Enemy Board. In 2004, the Bulls released their sophomore album, “Slave Education”, to retail via Chuck D’s SLAMjamz Records. In partnership with SLAMjamz, blocSonic recently re-released this under-appreciated album in our special Xtended Edition deluxe format with a second disc packed with bonus...

Hello again everyone. After a month off, I was eager to unleash volume 9 to the world. As the title suggests, it's focused on "lo-fi" offerings that the world of net audio has to offer. Lo-fi as a description for music is kind of vague and can include many genres. Personally, I define lo-fi as any music without slick production – music that can contain distorted samples or distortion itself applied to any number of song elements. In fact, distortion becomes an advantage in the...

Anniversaries are always a good way to demarcate your progress or development, whatever it is that you want to keep track of. For a creative artist, anniversaries can be especially important. In this day and age when to be one, it means that, unless you’re one of the few who the mainstream deem marketable, you’re more than likely doing so without the expectation of monetary gain… mostly for the love of the art.

Today, things are shifting.Although netlabels still play a major roll, there’s an uptick in artists releasing their CC music independently via bandcamp. There are also well-known artists flirting with CC licensing. A few years ago, it was Saul Williams and Nine Inch Nails. Now, as this compilation can...
